Antarctica – Penguin Preview

And…. I’m back!  Much to share, and tonight I’ll post my two first days’ entries, but as the first few days don’t include much on the Antarctic animals (which I know many of you are eager to see), here’s a bit of a preview of what lies ahead. The following is a video clip from a rookery of Gentoo Penguins living at Port Lockrey – a British research station built during WWII.
